The heart of everything that is...


I counted how many drawings I've made since my show at the Delavan in November and it seems I've made ninety new things...I've been busy...this little drawing is one of them...

I've been playing around with soft pencils, 9B and 8B mostly, I'm in love with their squishy texture, and the dust...you see, I've bought wood less pencils so I keep the shavings from the sharpener in a small tub, dip in and smear it around...oh, yes, I'm having way too much fun with it. These aren't as detailed as my others, the harder pencils are best for that...

I also bought a very small sketch book (about 4 x 4) back in April, I'm filling that up with more random marks...for a while there I was doing a drawing a day, but life often gets in the way of that sort of pace...so I've slowed it down a little bit and just go with the flow...
